Florida Accident Claims Unpaid
The St. Petersburg Times reports that, since 2001, the Florida Legislature has paid only one accident claim bill. The Times reports that judges and juries ruled in favor of the accident victims. They are legally entitled to be paid. The catch is the Legislature has to approve of any claim over $200,000. The Legislature is stingy with that $4-billion budget surplus.
"We are having a difficult time coming to an agreement on which bills would be heard and the process through which they would be heard," Senate President Tom Lee.
Senator, these people are legally entitled to that money. What part of that is hard to understand?
